Kinchega Woolshed

Location: 15km south-west of, Menindee, NSW 2879

Constructed: 1875-1875


The Kinchega Woolshed is remarkable for its size and design. Built in 1875 it illustrates the huge size of pastoral holdings in the arid areas of inland Australia. Kinchega lies amongst the beautiful Menindee Lakes, fed by the Darling River amid forests of river red gum, coolabah and black box. An oasis for wildlife, waterbirds flock here throughout the year to breed in the extensive rookeries. Great red kangaroo and wandering emus may be seen in their native habitat. Goannas and brilliantly coloured parrots can also be seen along the woodland areas of the river. Bushwalks, picnic areas and basic camping facilities are available. Visitors can enjoy fishing, swimming and boating or visit Aboriginal cultural sites.
